The purpose of the Chef & Child Foundation, which was founded in 1989, is to foster, promote, encourage and stimulate an awareness of proper nutrition in preschool and elementary school children, as well as combat childhood obesity. The foundation funds programs which give instruction on nutrition and proper eating habits to school age children. The American Culinary Federation Education Foundation Chef & Child Foundation focuses on the nutritional development of all of America’s children in all economic segments.
If children are cooking, then American Culinary Federation chefs want to be involved in their nutritional education. So, please join us in our effort to end childhood hunger, and obesity and usher in a healthier tomorrow for all children.
